Welcome to Stuff For Guys, where you'll find information about a lot of useless stuff, an occasional useful stuff, but it's all stuff for guys. In Star Wars Assault Team, some Promotion Items are in greater demand than others. Want to get an idea of which Survival Promotion tems are more common than others when trying to promote your Spider, Terentatek, Chewbacca, Savrip, Wookiee, SpecForce, Katarn, Watch-Beast, Womp Rat, Rebel Soldier, Massiff and Shistavanen? Hint: it took me on average 6 tries to get the Energy Pudding and 5 tries to get the Wasaka Berry Pie Feast for my Spider and Terentateks; in fact, it seemed as if you always have to try 5 times first before they finally give it to you on the 6th attempt.

Additionally, is there any strategy to the hunt for these items? Sure there is -- if you're hunting for both Tier 4 and Tier 2 Promotion Items, then you can skip the 4-Energy Tier 2 missions and go straight to the new 4-Energy Tier 4 missions (same mission, just lowered cost), since you will be getting at least 1 Tier 2 Promotion Items in each Tier 4 mission, and you're not spending any additional Energy. Same for Tier 5 and Tier 3 -- skip the Tier 3 missions and go straight to the Tier 5 missions, since you will always get a Tier 3 Promotion Item in the Tier 5 mission. However, if you absolutely do not need the Tier 4 or 5 item and your team is not strong enough to handle those harder missions, then just hit the Tier 2 or 3 mission. As for Tier 1 -- I would recommend hitting any higher tier mission, since they will often reward Tier 1 Promotion Items as well. No need to waste the precious 4 Energies.
